A Quote by Elias Penn-Smith on god, heart, pain, strength, and truth

Dear God, let me know within my heart When I am right; Let it be the balm to soothe my deepest pain; Let me know the truth and speak it, When to hold would bring me gain; Dear God, let me truly know myself And have the inside strength To stand alone.

A Quote by Elias Penn-Smith on god, joy, and songs

Identify God's emissaries By the light in their eyes, By the lilt in their song, By the glow of their skin And the joy within; Not with the face of a dried-up peach, And a voice that would teach Of doom and sin.
